Shari Arkills | 3 comments My teacher read a book to the class in the late 70’s about a society of children. All of the adults had died ( I think in an epidemic). My memories of the plot basically involved them roaming around the city finding food and things to use to make new homes. I assume that it had been published in the 1970’s but possibly the 1960’s. I have no other specific memories.

Here's the Google Books preview of The Girl Who Owned a City by O.T. Nelson - Andria's suggestion - https://books.google.com/books?id=M4O... There are different cover images.

Shari Arkills | 3 comments I found an updated version in my library's digital collection and read it. That may have been the right book but I didn't have any deja vu' moments when I read it so I'm not 100% sure. If you think of any others that have the same type of plot, please be sure to share them! Thank you.
